Does your site have the equipment necessary to keep workers safe and get the job done successfully? Gas detectors are important instruments for detecting toxic or combustible substances before they can pose a risk to the health and safety of workers. There are many different types of gas detectors and monitors, and they each offer different functionalities. It is important to understand what a portable gas detector is, how it works, why it is important, and how to choose one for your facility.
This guide describes what gas monitors and detectors are, how gas monitors and gas detectors work, the types of detecting and monitoring solutions, and why gas monitoring and detecting systems are important.

Many major industrial facilities throughout the world rely upon magnetic level indicators (MLI) to effectively, reliably, and safely visualize and control levels in complex process applications. When safety and performance are at stake, it is critical that manufacturers have the right equipment and understand how to optimize the use of tools.

Vibration Analysis is an important maintenance tool that is often used to monitor the overall condition of heavy industrial machinery. Vibration Analysis allows you to detect issues that can lead to equipment failure, breakdowns, and shutdowns. This process will show errors and faults before the machinery starts to display any noticeable signs of failure. Therefore, you will know exactly which areas of the machine need to be maintained before it becomes a major problem.

Guided wave radar technology is a method of measuring the level of liquids with radio waves. It is used in continuous measurement systems for various applications, from the chemical industry to oil and gas production, water treatment plants, and more.
Gas detection controllers are used in a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications where fire, smoke, and/or toxic gases can present a potential hazard to property or threat to personnel. Controllers are designed to work with one or more gas detectors that provide permanent and continuous monitoring and generate actions in case of gas detection.
Your refinery has options when revamping Delayed Coker Units. This was recently realized for a customer of ours, one of the biggest refineries in the United States. They have two delayed coking units. DCU 1 which consist of a 4 drum coker and DCU 2, which consist of a 6 drum coker. All 10 drums currently were using our competitors level system for measurements.
The accuracy of a thermal mass flow meter is dependent upon the technology type and the quality of the materials used for the meter’s sensor design. A well-designed sensor is made to measure flow accurately over a long period of time with minimal drift, independent of recalibration and calibration validation diagnostics. For a thermal mass flow meter, the materials used in the manufacture of the sensor play a vital role in the overall performance of the sensor. The materials must create the best environment for heat transfer - the essential principle of thermal mass flow measurement - or the accuracy and response time suffer.
Hot-wet continuous emission monitoring (CEM) measurement means analyzing the stack gas sample on an as-is basis, which ensures that the integrity of the sample, from extraction through analysis, is maintained. Keeping a good heat integrity in hot-wet measurement is very important to prevent the condensation of acid mist or water vapor.
